Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jones was able to finally make an impact last week, but the matchup may have played a large role in that. This week, Jones isn't worth considering as anything more than a low-end FLEX play. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's averaging just 1.04 yards per route run this year, which is the eighth-worst in football, with the likes of Gabriel Davis and Larry Fitzgerald. He did show some sign of life last week, totaling 80 yards on six targets against the Falcons. With Golladay in the lineup, Jones has averaged 4.0 targets per game, which is less than ideal, as is the fact that Danny Amendola has totaled more yards than him through six games (270-226). His matchup is better than Golladay's this week, as the Colts second-year cornerback Rock Ya-Sin has struggled in coverage as of late, allowing 10-of-15 passing for 172 yards over their last two games. The Lions do move Golladay and Jones back and forth, so he's not the only one who'll see Ya-Sin. The Colts have been one of the better defenses, but the only games they failed to allow multiple double-digit PPR receivers were against the Jets (duh) and the Vikings when Kirk Cousins completed just 11-of-26 passes in Week 2. Overall, they've allowed 12 different receivers to finish as WR46 or better, so Jones stays in the WR4/5 conversation, even with the lack of targets he usually sees.You can't say the Giants haven't been trying to get him the ball, as he's averaging 6.3 targets per game, and they've even given him multiple carries in two of their last three games. He's totaled at least 9.5 PPR points in 4-of-7 games, which is a bit more stable than most realize, though he's yet to score more than 12.5 PPR points, so the ceiling has been non-existent. The Bucs have been similar to him, honestly. They've allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, giving up 6.81 yards per target (22nd), a 61.7 percent completion-rate (27th), and a touchdown every 15.7 targets (18th). So, they're a below-average matchup, though there have been five tight ends who've finished as top-15 options against them (Darren Waller was the only one who finished better than TE9). With the lack of run game, we should expect another game of six-plus targets for Engram, which keeps him in the high-end TE2 conversation.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 The Buccaneers are 12th against fantasy tight ends, it is hard to trust Engram as more than a TE2 playing with Daniel Jones.
